Yes, all this looks very nice! But are you saying that these configuration options are available when I embed the player *from Archive.org*? I mean within the tag, as explained here: http://archive.org/help/video.php?

On longtail's site I read about several options when embedding the player: http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/28839/embedding-the-player But these options require that you have access to the and of the page where the player is. However an imports its own and , so they are set, in our case, by archive.org. I tried to pass my options in the tag which embeds the player, but they don't seem to have an effect there. I tried with "title" and "displaytitle".

So I guess the question is: when using the method recommended by archive.org to embed its player, is there a way to hide the number before the title?
You can see my problem here: http://www.ethnomusicologie.fr/test-item Although no listbar is displayed, all examples are numbered 1. on the button at the center of the video. I want to change this, but the player's appearance is configured by archive.org. Can I have more control over it than what's described here http://archive.org/help/video.php?

I can tell you there are many years of history at The Archive involving several embedded flow players and their upgrades. The jwplayer is their latest iteration. They use "third party" modules all the time.

Rendered outcomes for the inline flow player's control panel, track titles, track lists, track order, and track playback behavior are interactively affected by changes Admins like me make to the items here. I will regularly alter the filesets, metadata, and web designs for my items at The Archive by using their metadata editor module - often to achieve web page design effects like the ones you are utilizing.

The Archive's chief engineer has a discussion thread for the "new video/audio player"

You and I are both agreeing The Archive engineers are setting parameters for the jwplayer that concern you. The Archive engineers are also setting the CSS codes, etc. Your web page examples with the "1" in them look fine to me. Everything functions perfectly. That's all I can tell you.

You can email The Archive directly. I do not work for them.
